Flag Protocol

We adhere to the U.S. Flag Code (Title 1, Chapter 4) and exceptions made by the U.S. Cemetery Association, allowing flags to be flown at night without lights during specific holiday periods, including Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Placing and removing flags for these holidays is also environmentally conscious and fiscally responsible. The flags are safely stored at the town office and kept in good condition so that they can be reused year after year. We welcome volunteers to help place and remove flags over the Memorial Day and Veterans Day holidays. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer.

The Cemetery Committee strives to acknowledge all veterans buried in Owls Head. Kindly contact us if you know of a veteran buried here without a flag or medallion.

SEARCH Veterans Graves


Please call the Owls Head Town Office at (207) 594-7434. The Owls Head (“Airport”) Cemetery is the only one available for new burials.

Town Votes to Acquire Owls Head (aka Airport) Cemetery

At the August 28 Owls Head Town Meeting the Town voted to purchase the Owls Head (aka Airport) Cemetery for $21,000.  The cemetery lies on 2.16 acres of land that were leased from Knox County in 1995 for 99 years (until 2094). The purchase will save the town tens of thousands of dollars.

Town Votes to Assume Merriman (aka Lighthouse) Cemetery

At the August 28 Owls Head Town Meeting voters approved assuming responsibility for the long neglected Merriman (aka Lighthouse) Cemetery. Costs to the town include minimal legal fees for deed research, which have already been incurred, and future mowing. The OHCC is planning a conservation project there to repair and reset the headstones in 2024/25.

Preservation Work at Holiday Beach Cemetery

Led by conservator Joe Ferannini of Grave Stone Matters, we are conducting a multi-year preservation project at Holiday Beach Cemetery.  We began in July with two days of cleaning headstones. Over a 4-day period this fall, we worked on 32 gravestones and reset 5 foot stones, but there is still much to do and we will resume work in the spring of 2023. During our work this year, we identified over 100 unmarked graves through dowsing and marked the locations of all marked and unmarked graves using GPS. A map of the cemetery is forthcoming. Little is known about the history of Holiday Beach Cemetery. If you know of someone buried at Holiday Beach, or in any of our cemeteries in an unmarked grave, please contact us through email or on Facebook.
